Hi, in Hedge type of account, how do I increase the volume of an open position?

I guess in Non-Hedge account, the answer would be to ask for a new order.

But in Hedging account, I assume that asking for a new order will result in new position? Can this be avoided, as I am trying to limit myself to one position per currency.

   if(AccountInfoInteger(ACCOUNT_MARGIN_MODE)==ACCOUNT_MARGIN_MODE_RETAIL_HEDGING)//individual positions are possible (hedging, multiple positions can exist for one symbol).

So you add another position if that is undesirable use a different account 

ACCOUNT_MARGIN_MODE_RETAIL_NETTING

Used for the OTC markets to interpret positions in the "netting" mode (only one position can exist for one symbol).

Thanks Marco.

I guess I have to ask my (potential) broker if it offers the NETTING account.

You only ever have one position, regardless of how many filled orders. It's somewhat trivial to implement EA logic to treat several filled orders as one net position.
